well, these are not really new because i got the 2.55 over the summer, but since we are moving all of my stuff is all over the place and I just found this purse in a storage box. so although i did NOT just purchase it, it's RE-new to me!! haha! i also have the 2.55 in black with gold chains. these gloves are from last year. unfortunately, since i was unable to locate them, i bought another pair on ebay last week! oh well, now i have two pairs!! ps. for some reason the picture came out "pink-ish"
